BELMONT, N.Y. (WROC-TV) – The Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) arrested 25-year-old Shane Kranock of Belmont on Monday for causing significant head injuries to a one-year-old child.
The child was then transported to Golisano Children’s Hospital in Rochester, according to New York State Police.
Further investigation revealed that Kranock might have dropped the child after changing a diaper. Kranock was under the influence of heroin at the time of the incident.

Allegany Child Protective Services were contacted.
Kranock was charged with Assault 1st degree (B Felony) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
He was taken to SP Amity and processed then arraigned at the village of Belmont Court. Kranock was remanded to Allegany County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail and $200,000 bond.
Police say the child is in guarded condition with possible significant brain injury.
